Less than 2 weeks to go. The games are quickly approaching.

Are you nervous or afraid.

Nervous is ok. It sharpens your nerves, and makes you edgy, and hungry, helps you to train for the unknown, helps you to anticipate,and react.
Fear not so good, it makes you irrational, it makes you sloppy, it causes you to miss reps and worst of all it causes you to DOUBT yourself.
My favorite quote is this.
From the book of Matthew
"Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.


This is just an Event, just one day in an entire lifetime. Its not going to kill you, and trust me noone will make fun of you. embrace it fully, and don't fear it, you are attempting something grand which few people ever even try, whether you win or loose, you will grow, and you will feel stronger and gain more confidence, most of all you gain pride and respect.
So don't fear, instead, embrace it, and attack it fully. Its your life, go out and live it.
